Thanks for your query
Hyperaerated lung indicates peripheral air trapping seen in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and asthma.
Calcific lesions are older lesions probably due to past tuberculosis or calcified vascular lesions.
Kindly consult a pulmonologist and get urself locally examined. If required go for spirometry testing to conclusively prove your COPD and treatment thereafter accordingly.
Thank you.
